I'm a little bit obsessed with the Ombre Yarn Eater sweater by Stephen West. What a fantastic idea!!! The pattern uses multiple yarns held together to use up lots of left overs that you might have floating around. It looks like a gorgeous sweater to wear around on those cold evenings, snuggled up with a hot apple cider.
I think that once my other projects are off the needles, that I might give this one a go. Especially as I'm trawling through cold weather websites and planning a Scandinavian adventure. I love that it allows you to really play with the yarn mix and colours... so much fun!
I've started pulling together various yarns that I have and putting them in a container for this sweater. I'm going with a grey and pink theme which is playful too. There was some thicker yarn that was a natural colour that I've also dyed in light greys and pinks to go in the mix as well.
Wish me luck!
